The Blue Bride

Oh Yeah. A picture is worth a thousand words.

A shotgun wedding perhaps?  Certainly, neither of them looks like they want to be there. However, the blue dress rather than the more usual white ?  What's the message there?   Blue was the original virginal colour (Think of Jesus's mom - always portrayed with a blue headscarf to reflect her virginity.)  It's very blue - are the parents shouting a message, subtley? The kids have to get married...but not for that reason.

Oh boy. My imgination is working overtime. Hope you're similarly intrigued.

Bonus -  A game for destructive engineers.
